This clinical study is designed to evaluate the theoretical prediction of a lower glucose absorption in optimized automated peritoneal dialysis regimes. Patients will receive both a standard 6 x 2L 1.36% glucose regime or an optimized 7 x 2 L 2.27% glucose + 5 x 2 L 0.1% glucose regime in a crossover fashion.
Automated peritoneal dialysis (APD) is a rapidly growing, home-based kidney replacement therapy promoting patient autonomy, and is associated with lower societal costs compared to hemodialysis. However, in light of the growing number of diabetic patients on PD, the unwanted glucose absorption during APD is problematic. Recent results (Öberg CM, Rippe B, 2017, see references), using a theoretical model of APD, indicate that large reductions in glucose absorption are possible by using specialized so-called optimized bi-modal treatment regimes having "UF cycles" using a higher glucose concentration (e.g. 2.27% glucose) and "Clearance cycles" using a low glucose concentration (e.g. 0.1% glucose).

Portable peritoneal dialysis using the continuous (24 hours a day, 7 days a week) presence of peritoneal dialysis solution in the peritoneal cavity except for periods of drainage and instillation of fresh solution.
Dialysis fluid being introduced into and removed from the peritoneal cavity as either a continuous or an intermittent procedure.
Therapy for the insufficient cleansing of the BLOOD by the kidneys based on dialysis and including hemodialysis, PERITONEAL DIALYSIS, and HEMODIAFILTRATION.
Disorder characterized by a wide range of structural changes in PERITONEUM, resulting from fibrogenic or inflammatory processes. Peritoneal fibrosis is a common complication in patients receiving PERITONEAL DIALYSIS and contributes to its gradual decrease in efficiency.
The end-stage of CHRONIC RENAL INSUFFICIENCY. It is characterized by the severe irreversible kidney damage (as measured by the level of PROTEINURIA) and the reduction in GLOMERULAR FILTRATION RATE to less than 15 ml per min (Kidney Foundation: Kidney Disease Outcome Quality Initiative, 2002). These patients generally require HEMODIALYSIS or KIDNEY TRANSPLANTATION.
In medicine, dialysis is a process for removing waste and excess water from the blood, and is primarily used to provide an artificial replacement for lost kidney function in people with renal failure. Dialysis may be used for those with an acute disturba...
